Where a judge advocate1 does not authorise keeping the accused in service custody after charge2, the accused may be required to comply, before release or later, with such requirements as appear to the judge advocate to be necessary to secure his attendance at any hearing in the proceedings against him3. A person on whom such a requirement has been imposed commits an offence if, without reasonable excuse4, he fails to attend any hearing to which the requirement relates5, and any person guilty of such an offence6 is liable to any punishment authorised by statute, but any sentence of imprisonment
